Art We Love

Courting the Colors of Love: Original Art for Valentine’s Day

We picked a colorful bouquet of our favorite love-themed artworks in celebration of Valentine’s Day this week. Share a new contemporary artwork with someone special you love or choose a new gem for yourself to summon more romance, humor, or beauty into your life… The choice is yours!

Here’s a selection from our new Valentine’s Day Art collection to get things going…

Say it With Blooms That Will Never Fade

Choose some flowery figurative art and infuse your rooms with a touch of spring and romance. A fetching floral portrait painting, like this one by Saatchi Art artist Hanna Ilczyszyn with hints of romantic red and sunny yellow is sure to be embraced by your favorite fashionista, gardener, or vintage lover, too.

A Perfect Pair

Celebrate your time together with art featuring couples… When your honey is funny, why not treat them to some Valentine’s Day humor, like this original painting by Saatchi Art artist Kelly Puissegur?

When you’re looking for ways to proclaim your passion, consider an elegantly erotic art photo or minimal nude to set the mood.

Lost Love

Art about love doesn’t always need to be rosy. This minimal modern painting by Gino Belassen speaks volumes about the ebb and flow of love in our lives.

Romantically Retro

If you or someone you love is a Mid-Century Modern fan, we have romantic art ready to fit the bill. For a more blissful bedroom, reach for a statement making pink and purple nude reminiscent of a vintage pin up… Or, remind your special someone just how much in love you are with a gilded text-based artwork in sign painted style.
